Tune In, Turn On, Chat UpBy
Join us at 5pm for a few fun-filled hours of real-time observation, policy discussion, and uncensored snark as we liveblog tonight’s Asheville City Council meeting; the agenda and all the supporting documentation can be found right here. And for the complete multimedia experience, be sure to turn on your teevee to Charter Cable Channel 11.
Your City Council will be talking Annual Financial Report, Downtown Master Plan, Energy Independence Initiative, Boards & Commissions, Roadside Solicitation (what does $20 buy you these days?) and various other juicy bits. Will Cecil Bothwell object when Mayor Bellamy gives the invocation? Will Jan Davis be sporting his sexy new spectacles? Will Esther Manheimer manage to crack a smile? Will Bill Russell regale us with stories from his latest Caribbean cruise? Will Gordon Smith finally get a fresh haircut? For the answers to these and other spicy questions, tune in tonight at 5.
Your host for the evening, as always, is the inimitable Paul Van Heden. He’s pretty easy-going — all he asks is that you abide by our Comments Policy. It’s his show and he has complete discretion as to who stays and who goes. I should mention that Councilman Smith has absolutely NO control (editorial or otherwise) over this liveblogging event. Any observations, opinions, humor, etc. are solely the responsibility of the person making them.
We hope you’ll join us in our little experiment in participatory democracy. Seeya tonight!
